The Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals got into the biggest brawl of the young MLB season Thursday night, and a pitcher for an AL Central rival enjoyed watching it very much.

The brawl began after a pair of hit batsmen preceded a sharp one hopper hit by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton back at Royal starter Yordano Ventura. It escalated as Jeff Samardzija and Lorenzo Cain threw punches.

Bauer compared the battle to the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, and the NHL playoffs battle between the Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators.
